#4 - Mindfulness & Mental Health | Lindsay Howard
Show Notes

The Women's Health, Wisdom, and... WINE! podcast is a biweekly conversation with practitioners, providers, patients & healers about complex reproductive medicine & women's health challenges, the value of an integrative approach to these challenges, many of the women's health topics you're already thinking about & uncomfortable talking about & my personal favorite... WINE!

Often times, we can heal from even the most damaging physical wounds easier than we can from the invisible (and often hidden) emotional ones. Each year millions of women face the reality of living with a mental health condition. In this episode, we will use our time together to focus on the healing value of connecting in safe ways, prioritizing mental health, acknowledging that it’s okay to not be okay, and joining the national movement to raise awareness about mental health. Today we're taking some special time to highlight the various non-conventional, non-pharmaceutical, non-invasive treatment modalities that provide support while also fighting the stigma of needing help.

Together, we can realize our shared vision of a communities where women affected by mental health challenges can get the appropriate support and quality of care to live healthy, fulfilling lives — communities where no one feels alone in their struggle. You are not alone. Now more than ever we need to find ways to stay connected with our respective communities. No one should feel alone or without the information, support, and help they need.
